Alum Works EVERY Time for Canker Sores!

I have been using Earth Clinic for natural remedies for a few years now, but this is my first review because it's the one remedy that works EVERY single time. Sometimes I think, this canker sore is TOO painful or TOO big for this remedy to work, but it absolutely does.

Is there ANYTHING worse than trying to chew on one side of your mouth to avoid irritating a canker sore? Anything worse than avoiding your favorite foods/drinks as to not make the pain worse?? I love salty snacks, love my coffee and salt & vinegar chips, so I'm definitely prone to cankers sores every couple months.

My method is as follows:

Dip the end of a Q-tip into a bit of raw honey, just enough to coat the tip. Then dip the honey end into the alum. For this next part, I find it best to use one hand to hold my iPhone with the flashlight on to light up the inside of my mouth so I can see what I'm doing. With the other hand, place the Q-tip on the canker sore to coat it. Don't swallow for 1 minute. I do this in front of the bathroom sink because sometimes you do drool! Then I rinse my mouth with water, go to sleep, and by the morning it's painless and much smaller, if not completely gone.

Sometimes the after taste of the alum can leave your mouth feeling funny and dry, but drinking water definitely helps.

Thanks to to all who have suggested this amazing remedy! My mouth thanks you! :)

What Could Cause Tooth Ache with Cheek Pain and Pricking in Lip?

A friend of mine reports "Awful toothache for some months now (plus pricking in my lip and pain in my cheek). My dentist took an x-ray and can't find anything wrong."

Could it possibly be facial parasthesia? All suggestions gratefully received.

Perhaps look into gall bladder flushes. Reflux can be a symptom of gallstones.

Multiple Remedies for Tooth Abscess

I have a history of horrible teeth.i have broken teeth, cavities, I need root canals and an impacted wisdom tooth. So you can only imagine the pain I have to endure sometimes. So recently my wisdom tooth was coming through. However its impacted so there is literally a slither poking through the gum and the pain and the infection was absolutely excruciating. I really just wanted to die. I cried for about 6 or 7 hrs. I had gone through and entire bottle of ibuprofen in 6 days and was working on Tylenol. I went to the hospital to get antibotics and what she prescribed me I couldnt afford. So I turned to natural remedies.


ok so I brushed my teeth, flossed the infected areas (which I recommend flossing your entire mouth, itx just the pain was so bad I was in a rush) I apply 3-4 drops of tea tree oil directly to my gums and teeth. Making sure to get inbetween my teeth and I massaged. You should feel slight relief immediately. Not complete relief though. As I began salivating more I swished it around to get the tt oil working. T

he next thing I did (my sister in law swears by it and now so do i) is I took a piece of garlic clove and ran it under warm water and bite down on it in the infected area. I left it there for as long as I could handle. (l recommend 20-30min) Before removing it I chewed it up and then spit out and rinsed with warm water. Your pain should be a dull ache at this point.

I then made a mouthrinse of tumeric, salt, and tt oil. I rinsed and held it in the area for a couple mins. I then made a paste from cinnamon and applied it to the area for 10mins.

It may seem like over kill but my pain and infection was so bad I felt the need for extra measures. I continued rubbing tt oil throughout the day for several days even though it felt better just bcuz I wanted to make sure the infection was gone. I also did the same with the tumeric mouthwash and garlic. Treat this treatmeant as an antibiotic and continue for 7 to 10 days. I also recommend sipping on cinnamon water. Its simply warm water, cinnamon powder or sticks which ever, and a green tea bag. Sip.swish and enjoy. It works wonders for a tooth infection on top of the other treatment.

I hope this helps someone!

Hi Sara usa - not sure if your question was to me as it was right after my post, but we just started this protocol with my mom in combination with Boswellia + Mystel Toe injections + Vit D daily. The protocol involves homeopathic combination of herbs and this is what we started just this past monday:

1) Ruta Gr. 6CH, in pills, 5 pills a dose, two doses daily, morning and evening.

2) Calcarea Phos 3DH (X), in tablets, 2 tablets a dose, two doses daily, noon and night.

3) Rhus Tox 30CH in pills,

4) Arnica Mont 3CH in pills,

1 dose = 3 pills from each (3 & 4), I.e. 3+3 = 6 pills together, two doses daily noon and night.

I bought the above from this site:

this protocol was given to me by Dr. Prasanta Banerji from the Dr. Prasanta Banerji Homoepathic Research Foundation. ( I found several forums, links, posts etc leading to a few positive recovery cases for benign meningiomas) so we decided to give it a try but still keep doing the recommended protocol from the naturopathic doctor, which is Boswellia Serrata (3x daily) + going in to the clinic twice a week for a 50mg Vitamin C Ivy and Daily 3000c of Vitamin D.

her tumor is a size of an egg - it has grown this yr in comparison to last year about 4mm all around. so it is quite a large mass pressing on her lower right side of the brain, and causing all her left side to be weak and ofcourse a lot of problems with balance and walking.

we will wait and see what this combination will do - it is surely expensive having it all combined but worth every penny if it avoids the idea of radiation completely which doctors keep pushing for her to do, even though they say it will only stop the tumor from growing but will not shrink and will cause her short term memory loss within 2 yrs. not even cure one thing fully but cause a million other damages to add to it. Ridiculous!

According to wikipedia:

Diatomaceous Earth is also known as D.E., diatomite, or kieselgur/kieselguhr, is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. It has a particle size ranging from less than 3 micrometres to more than 1 millimetre, but typically 10 to 200 micrometres. Depending on the granularity, this powder can have an abrasive feel, similar to pumice powder, and has a low density as a result of its high porosity. The typical chemical composition of oven-dried diatomaceous earth is 80 to 90% silica, with 2 to 4% alumina (attributed mostly to clay minerals) and 0.5 to 2% iron oxide.[1]

Diatomaceous earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae.

Hi Siddeswari,

Sorry to read that you are suffering from LP for pretty long time. Aloe vera is good, you can continue taking it internally and application. Borax is very effective on LP which also should be used internally and for application. For internal use you can mix 1/8th tea spoon of Borax in one litter of filtered water and drink this water whole day, only precaution you have to take is that don't drink this immediately before and after the meal. I prefer that this be stored in a glass bottle.

Also you have to change the life style, meaning you have to avoid stress/strain situations, include some exercise ( you must sweat ) in your daily schedule and most important your diet. Your diet has to be more on the alkaline side, I will even suggest taking enema to clean the colon.

Good Luck

My 29 year old daughter is the one who is suffering from vulvodynia and has seen a number of doctors over the past year and a specialist in vulvodynia who has prescribed a diazepam and gabapentin compounded cream which really hasn't been working. She just recently started seeing a pelvic floor therapist weekly where she is having my daughter use a dilator every night to help stretch the area plus the weekly therapy sessions. I came across your blog and purchased the combo. Not sure if the spirulina I purchased is a quality product because I bought it at Walmart which is the Spring Valley brand. I started her gradually with the NAC and 1000 mg vitamin C and she is also taking B-complex because she has a lot of sensitivities and I want to make sure she can tolerate the pills. I am concerned about stomach upset and diarrhea with the Vitamin C so I will have her gradually increase the vitamin C to 2000 mg then add the spirulina to the mix. I am curious she has been taking a multi vitamin so can she continue with that for the multi mineral or should be taking something completely different then the multi vitamin. She hates taking pills so this needs to be gradual steps vs all at once. I am hoping even with the NAC and part of the Vitamin C she will show some improvement so she will be more open to taking the pills. Crossing by fingers for that to occur. I am curious to your thoughts on this.

FYI,,,,,,,,,, we got about 2 quarts of peas from this shelling, but only 2 pints when dried. My Tractor Driver says she uses a cup of dried Pinto Beans to make a meal for us. Thus, those two pints of peas would make 4 meals for us. Guess what ....... picked another3/4 bushel of peas again today. With my pea sheller, dehydrator and sealer ..... none of this is a deal. I can do it by myself in a few hours.

I just turned over two 100' rows of pinto beans so they can dry and mature in the sun. The pinto's you buy in the store are not pinto's at all, but green beans that have been left to go to seed. They are called shellies and have been sprayed monthly for insects and mold.. They are stored in silos for a number of years. Got that information from a mechanic that worked for a national food supplier here in Tn.

Our garden veggies have none of these toxins and that is the reason we sweat 'til wet daily. Some think my garden posts are not about health. They are.... to folks that know where your health comes from.

Hi Siddeswari,

Tumeric has been found to be effective in healing oral Lichen Planus. Not sure what kind you have, but since turmeric is widely available, maybe give it a try, both orally and topically. Best wishes.

My mother is diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2014 and under taking medication as per pulmonologist advice (in India). 10 different medicines, including Pirfiner (200 mg) thrice a day

After recent visit to the clinic and disease progression, clinicians indicated maximum survival of 1 year. My mother is under 16 hours of Oxygen support at home.

I had come across Earth Clinic through google, and read positive reviews from people affected by PF, but not very clear about the dosages and combination of alternative medicines they are taking. Will it be possible to arrest the disease progression, by taking serrapeptase (enzyme) and Hydrogen peroxide. However I am not sure how to get these alternative medicine in India. Does anyone know where to buy them to ship to India? Can anyone advice the dosage for these medicines.

2. Can we take these medication along with other medication given by Pulmonologist?

Looking forward to hear from you at the earliest

Hi Anjali,

I sugest not go for steroidal treatment for LP event hough it is mostly recommended by dermatologists, as it only relieves it for few months. When you stop your steroidal treatment (especially oral medication) it reverts and the lesions become more aggresive. I am dealing it with for past 7-8 years and this was my observation. Try to go for more natural remedies, such as use applying aloe vera gel and consumption of the juice.

Also, let me know if you have found some home remedy to treat.

I was searching for a treatment for tinnitus yesterday and was told by an elderly phamacist that aspartame, the junk they substitute for sugar to make things like drinks diet, is believed to be one cause of ringing in the ears. Mine started back in 2004 after a ruptured aneurism. I figure that I was lucky to be alive and was told that there is no cure, so I have been living with it for the last 13 years, and now I hear about ACV and think, I have this in my cabinet ALL the time. Cant wait to try it out and see how it works.
